    [caption id="attachment_268873" align="aligncenter" width="600" caption="Drama Prime Time Report – 09/21~09/23"][/caption] The summer season has now come to an end with the last few remaining prime time dramas airing their final episodes over the weekend. On Friday, TBS aired the last episode of the drama 'Kuro no Onnakyoshi'. It was a disappointing finish with a rating of 8.0% (minus 1.2%), which is a new personal low. This is a rather su

    [caption id="attachment_267560" align="aligncenter" width="600" caption="Drama Prime Time Report – 09/14~09/17"][/caption] Monday was a public holiday in Japan, and therefore, the report was delayed by one day, but the (disappointing) ratings from Monday have been included as well. Nothing spectacular happened on Friday, since after all, there is only one prime time drama left - 'Kuro no Onnakyoshi' (TBS). It recorded 9.2%, which is a drop

On Friday, the ratings for 'Kuro no Onnakyoshi' (TBS) haven't changed at all, while TV Asahi recorded a small boost for the final episode of 'Boys on the Run' (+0.6%; rating: 6.3%).

    [caption id="attachment_264423" align="aligncenter" width="600" caption="Drama Prime Time Report – 08/31~09/02"][/caption] It was yet another weekend with only mediocre results for all the dramas. Friday kicked things off to unspectacular results due to some weak specials on NTV and Fuji TV. 'Kuro no Onnakyoshi' (TBS) barely lost 0.1% (rating: 9.8%) in the midst of those weak specials, but 'Boys on the Run' (TV Asahi) had to let some viewe

    [caption id="attachment_263109" align="aligncenter" width="600" caption="Drama Prime Time Report – 08/24~08/26"][/caption] This weekend NTV aired their charity special '24-Hour TV' along with a very popular drama special. Overall the special didn't crush the other networks like the Olympics did a few weeks ago, but there still weren't a lot of viewers left for the other variety shows and regular dramas. The sea of ratings was still calm on

The same can be said for most of the dramas, although they weren't nearly as strong as the variety shows. The Friday golden prime time slot was suddenly filled with show

While she managed to set a new Olympic Record, 'Taira no Kiyomori' finally set a new record as the worst single-episode rating

Fans of 'Boys on the Run' (TV Asahi) had to skip this Friday due to the

It seems like people weren't exactly enchanted by the drama premieres that aired last weekend or they all really had much better things to do on such a warm weekend, knowing they will have Monday off due to a holiday. 'Boys on the Run' (TV
